Rose McGowan to play Red SonjaJune 28th, 2008 - 5:24 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, June 28 (ANI): Italian actress Rose McGowan has been roped in to play the comic book hero in action flick Red Sonja to be produced by fiancee Robert Rodriguez.
The Red Sonja would be seen seeking vengeance against the evildoers that destroyed her family and then realizing it has fallen upon her and her kickass ways to save her Soviet-area land of Hyrkania from the sorcerer Kulan Gath.
“This is an amazing property and film for our company,” E! Online quoted studio exec Avi Lerner, as saying.
“Working with the talented Robert Rodriguez, having Rose McGowan as Red Sonja and Douglas Aarniokoski directing is a fantastic combination. We could not be happier,” he added.
The shooting is expected to kick off in October.
Red Sonja was first brought to the big screen, B-movie-style, in 1985, with Brigitte Nielsen as the title warrior and Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Conan-esque Lord Kalidor. (ANI)
